Corey Stoll Talks The Strain Season 2 And More At SDCC!

(PCM) Ever since the first episode of The Strain premiered we have found ourselves hooked to the epic FX drama. We caught up with actor Corey Stoll who plays the character of Ephraim Goodweather in the series at San Diego Comic Con 2015.

Stoll has been incredibly busy these days with various projects that include the role of Darren Cross/Yellowjacket in Marvel’s hit film “Ant-Man”and an upcoming role in Gillian Flynn’s “Dark Place” playing the brother to actress Charlize Theron. He was also recently seen in both “Homeland” and “House Of Cards”.

When discussing the direction of his character in season two of The Strain Stoll says “Last season, I was the resident skeptic and I was the last person to believe what everyone else in New York all ready knew. When we start season two, that’s gone. I’m still skeptical about some of the mythological basis behind what is going on and the stories Setrakian is telling me, but I believe there are vampires and I believe there is a Master that controls them and I believe they can use telepathy. But, I’m still using some kind of science based methodology to defeat them. I haven’t give up on the idea of a cure for the virus perhaps something that kills them, but doesn’t kill people. Almost like a bioweapon of sorts.”

When discussing his character’s downward spiral this season Stoll reveals, “You try to hold off as long as possible. You try to play each scene for the reality of what it is, where you are and not to prefigure the darkness that’s going to come. At the end of last season my character begins to drink again and instead of making it some kind of moralistic thing when I go into this spiral and I have to quit cold turkey, he drinks and he is self-medicating, but it is sort of working for him. It is making him a little bit more tolerable and it helps him to actually see some humor in the horror that’s around him.

There will definitely be consequences to pay for that and that is something that I really like about the show in general is its’ lack of puritanical moralism that a lot of horror has, for example the virgin always lives, the girl who sleeps around always dies first, so it’s good to kind of go away from that and we have Guillermo to thank for our twisted post-Catholic world.

Stoll told us that he has read the books and he knows where the character goes in the books, but this is clearly not the books. Carlton Cuse had said before that eighty percent of this season is exclusive to this series and is not from the book and he assumes that is going to be the case going forward. Stoll comments “If you read the books, that’s great because you have a sense of what the world is that we are living in and you know who some of the characters are, but the show really is its’ own thing. I have an idea of where Eph could go, but he could totally go in a different direction which is exciting. ”

Tune into an all-new episode of The Strain this Sunday at 10pm only on FX!

Gus and Vaun wage an attack on Palmer as Eph struggles to connect with Zack. Councilwomen Justine Faraldo vows to bring her extermination policies to the other boroughs.

FX Orders The Bastard Executioner To Series

TBX

(PCM) FX has given the green-light for a 10-episode order of “The Bastard Executioner” a new period drama series from “Sons Of Anarchy” mastermind Kurt Sutter. The series will follow a Middle Ages warrior knight who gets pulled back into fighting once he assumed his days were done.

Taking on the role of lead actor is Lee Jones, who portrays executioner Wilken Brattle. The pilot episode was written by Sutter and he will be once again taking on the duty of executive producer alongside Brian Grazer, Francie Calfo and Paris Barclay. The pilot episode was directed by Paris Barclay and fans of SOA know that with Barclay in the directors seat heads are surely going to roll (in the best way possible).

The pilot episode was filmed in Wales and the rest of the series is expected to pick up production this summer with the plan being for a fall premiere on FX this year.
